Racism Does Exist!

The picture above may say it all. Why was a person of color, jogging down a road, and followed by armed white individuals shot down? Why did it take 74 days for arrests to be made? Would this have happened if the person who was shot was white? Racism does exist in our community, in … Read more

Community

When it comes to joining together to make our neighborhoods, our cities, and our world better, one of the most important things we can do to make this happen is to find out what we all have in common. Unfortunately, as a community, what we all have in common right now is that we are … Read more

Living In Uncertain Times – COVID-19

As I write this post, we are living the Covid-19 pandemic, which is something most anyone alive today has never seen before. It is changing the way everyone goes about their daily lives (well most everyone). I know many people are still not following the recommendations and warnings.

I was at my neighborhood bar, walking distance, just a few blocks, no reason to drive—I knew … Read more

My Person
